NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams in London and Abu Dhabi

Today I’m showing you the two nudes that are as nudey as I can get without making my lips look like they’ve been smeared with zinc oxide.

I dunno why I would smear my lips with zinc oxide, but I have a reputation of being quite odd, so it’s not a far-fetched scenario.

I rarely wear nude lipstick, but I’ve still been on the hunt for one in case I ever needed it. Neutrals and MLBB lip colors have always worked best for me (I have large eyes, so neutral eyes and color on the lips is the best look for me). Nudes have taken a backseat in my makeup life.



London is on top and Abu Dhabi is at the bottom.

London is more of a neutral nude. Abu Dhabi is more pink and a little darker than London. They’re both creams with no shimmer.

They both look very close in shade on my lips. They offer a little color on me. They’re the best nude for my brown skin I have ever found. If you’re MAC NC40-42 or thereabouts, check these out if you want a nude lip color.
